Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
as thou hast been thou forever will be.
Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
all I have needed thy hand hath provided;
great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.    Refrain

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!     Refrain

This hymn has been going around in my head for a couple of days now.

I just think that God’s faithfulness is great, that he cares for us in all seasons of our lives, that He is watching over us at all times.

God blessed our children this past week with Encouragement Awards at the Eisteddfod we attended. These awards are funds to help with their music tuition. This was such a blessings as we have been behind with their music fees this year.

We couldn’t believe it, and we were so excited and thankful. I was sitting there as they were getting ready to announce the awards thinking “Oh Lord it would be wonderful it one of the children won one”, but I didn’t think it would happen.  Not because I didn’t think God could do it but because there were so many other children who played so well and were deserving of an award.

So when they both won one, it was wonderful.

As our oldest daughter said God blessed the children for their diligence in practicing and in turn that blessed us as a family.

When everyone had settled down, I had time to think about how blessed we are and how God is faithful to supply all our needs.

Great is His faithfulness

Our oldest daughter says that I am soppy and mushy and well, I just can’t help it.

I am 47 years old and married to the best man ever, I have 4 children here and 2 babies waiting in Heaven, 2 granddaughters and another grandchild on the way.

I never thought that I would ever get married, let alone have children and grandchildren.  I never thought that there would be the perfect man for me, but I have been so blessed.

We have had some terribly tough years and those when we were first married were the hardest, but we stayed true to each other and with God we battled our way through them and now, well boy it’s great.

My husband and I have been through the loss of two babies, one miscarriage and one stillbirth, and that alone has softened our hearts.

You may think that I am mushy but he is much worse, but I just love that about him. I love that the loss of our children has meant as much to him as to me and that he was able to share his pain with me. Through this time we have grown so much closer.

We have a grown son who is a delight and I am still privileged to homeschool two more children for at least another 10 years. I really thought I would be an empty nester and if God didn’t have his way I would have been.

Now none of our children or ourselves are perfect – we are so far from it that you can only see perfection through strongly adjusted binoculars, and those binoculars are held by Jesus through which God sees us.14476534727_7e0a744eca_q

He has blessed us abundantly, not with wealth or ready money, but with each other and the means to help others.

That’s what life is all about, God, family and others, not about riches of gold or a big bank balance.

So if all of the above makes me soppy and mushy, well so be it.

I apologise to all of you who have to read my soppy posts and and I’m sorry oldest daughter but I will continue to write great things about you and your wonderful family, your father and siblings because in Jesus’ eyes and mine you are all just perfect.
